I had to go and get a consultation and a typhoid vaccine, in preparation for going to the Cape Verde islands, at a new place today. The nurse was going over medical risks in the area, stuff I might need to know, etc. When she told me I should bring my own pads and tampons because they're hard to get there, I told her I'd just started using a menstrual cup. She didn't know what they were, so I just pulled it out of my purse and told her about it. Hopefully, she'll tell other patients. It's a place that gets you up to date on shots and meds for travel, so I'm sure her patients could use it.
